Lenovo Laptop features a lightweight design, large touch pad and good performance compared with other laptops with the same price range. One of its unique features is its narrow viewing angle screen.

1.9 cm thin and weighing 1.65 kg, U41 is not the thinnest and the lightest 14-inch laptop, but it is very impressive compared to other models with the same price. Despite its low cost, Lenovo is still trying to create elegance for machines, namely in plastic coating metal surfaces as well as the upper palm rest inside.

Machine design is simple and modern with large touch pad also highlighted with key metal resources.
Although some of the parts of the laptop were made of plastic materials, the laptop itself has a solid look and features. These can obviously be noticed on the performance of its hinges. The Lenovo U41 can be open and closed at a 180 degrees wide angle that accentuate how durable and flexible its hinges are.

Omit optical drives by request of thinness, U41 is still full connectivity with 2 USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI, SD card reader, LAN jack and 3.5mm headphone port.
U41 has an AccuType keyboard which is ergonomically designed to make typing more comfortable and reduce errors. Although the keyboard has a good bounce it still has a heavy press feeling when you used it.Optimized for Windows 8 and beyond, the intuitive, easy-to-use touch pad features simple scroll, zoom and rotate functions.

Lenovo U41 is equipped with a Dolby Home Theater speaker system technology with 1.5 W speakers destined to increased audio clarity and maximized volume output without distortion.

Lenovo's new laptops have 14 inch screen and a HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Instead of the glossy screens that most laptops have, the Lenovo U41 has an anti-glare screen which allows anyone to use it efficiently and comfortably even under a bright light or sun flare. However, by not using the IPS panel, the viewing angle of the laptop is not good.

It’s battery life was tested for by viewing a 720p movie with continuous playback, a turn-off Wifi connection, adjusted volume of 70% with the use of headphones rather the speaker (sound of chapter Windows Media Player to the level of 100%) and running at 50% brightness, it was estimated that the battery lasted for about 3 hours and 42 minutes.The result was almost equivalent to the estimated time of 4 to 5 hours that the manufacturer promised.
